The Global Campus of Human Rights organises the 2022 edition of the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on Business and Human rights that will take place from 23 May to 26 June 2022. The MOOC is meant to embrace and support a set of core values in the areas of human rights, labour standards, and environmental practices.
The course is addressed to participants -- businesses, state representatives, grassroots organisations working on business-related issues, workers, and ordinary citizens -- around the world who are actively interested and engaged in business and human rights work. It will be an opportunity for the participants to gain a multidimensional understanding of current developments, key issues and possibilities for transformation.
Participation in the course will allow one to grasp the linkage between business and human rights defenders, and to deepen the knowledge about key standards, documents and approaches in this regard. The course is divided into two modules: Module 1 focuses on the general international framework of the relationship between business and human rights, while Module 2 is dedicated to specific themes of pressing value. Core themes of the course include standards, mechanisms, benefits and challenges in the current set-up, especially at the United Nations and regional level, the protection of human rights defenders working on business-related abuses, the case law emerging from recent developments, and corporate responsibility to respect human rights.
Free enrollment is possible until 12 June 2022. For more information and enrollment, please visit the website of the Global Campus of Human Rights.
